A must :not: read!

I haven't read the Twilight books or seen the movies. I chose not to - most would ask almost with disbelief, "WHY?" At first, I thought that it was just the fact that the main character was a vampire. A handsome vampire. That sparkles. No thank you! Anything that really deals with the occult of dark romanticism is not my idea of good entertainment. As I found out more about the series and saw what it was doing to young girls, young women, even married women, I abhorred the series even more. What ever gives you the over sensualized thoughts, the emotional 'ripping out' of your heart for a fictional character, giving you a fake example of what 'true love' is making all other human relationships worth nothing, suggesting that you isolate yourself to be with the blood-sucking, FICTIONAL boyfriend is definately not worth getting involved in.

Phil. 4:8 shows us what God says we should put our time and efforts into.
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things."

Just some thoughts on the pop culture icon that has swept the females of the nation off their feet...

For more reading about the Twilight series, please read this:


  1. Yay Sarah! I agree completely! :)

  2. I just happen to know quite a handful of people (myself included) that would totally agree with you ^-^ Unfortunately...there is also the handful that disagree; even Christians.

    It has grown worse as the obsession is over a werewolf type of guy and not just the vampire. Thank you for standing on biblical truth. Such examples are obviously not the most common; though I've met a small handful. Continue to pursue God and the truths that He has set forth ^-^


    "The eye of the adulterer waits for the twilight, saying, ‘No eye will see me’; and he disguises his face."
    ~Job 24:15

    "We grope for the wall like the blind, And we grope as if we had no eyes; We stumble at noonday as at twilight; We are as dead men in desolate places."
    ~Isaiah 59:10

    Or as Emily H. would love to quote:

    "Your New Moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them."
    ~Isaiah 1:14
